The Corporate Connection engages the private sector to join the campaign to end veteran homelessness.
NCHV created the Corporate Connection, in partnership with The Home Depot Foundation, to help America’s businesses increase access to housing, employment and family stabilization services for homeless and at-risk veterans and their families. This specialized site explores two background and resource-rich tracts, practical briefing papers, Veterans Housing Portal, and more.
The Knowledge Tract considers frequently asked questions, demographics and location of homeless veterans, and distills key information on the latest veterans-related reports, background on today’s military, and provides resources so you can help build your own business case to help homeless veterans.
The Solution Tract presents firsthand accounts of success stories from veterans and businesses, information on benefits to your organization to help join in the campaign, and further resources to help personalize your solution to address veteran homelessness. From employee volunteer programs to Good360's expertise in donation of excess inventory; this section will help you discover how your business can help.
The CC Briefing Papers provide targeted subject matter to help facilitate strategies and tactics the private sector can utilize in helping end veteran homelessness. In addition, community-based organizations and government agencies will find these papers useful in communicating and partnering with local businesses.
In addition, the Veterans Housing Portal presents information on how businesses, community-based organizations, and local, state and federal agencies can convert abandoned and foreclosed properties to support the campaign.
The ultimate goal of the Corporate Connection is to help America’s businesses increase access to housing, employment and family stabilization services for homeless and at-risk veterans and their families.
